Event Details

7:00 reception, 7:30 film screening & discussion
with the filmmakers

Join us for a works-in-progress screening of Rich Hill, produced and directed by Andrew Droz Palermo and Tracy Droz Tragos. Rich Hill focuses on the once thriving mining town of Rich Hill, Missouri. A town located seventy miles south of Kansas City and fifteen miles east of the Kansas border, panic hit after World War II when the coal was gone, entirely mined out. The town began to die, stores closing and residents moving away--but it didn't die. Through it all, people still live there today. Despite their tattered shacks, desperation, and ultimate isolation, these residents still maintain hope for a brighter future and normal life, where hard work is rewarded and the American dream comes true.

This is the third screening in the new First Looks Work-in-Progress Screening Series, a quarterly collaboration between Venice Arts and the International Documentary Association. The program offers the public and members of the film community advance access to new documentaries in progress, and the opportunity to participate in behind-the-scenes conversations with filmmakers and creators.

The fourth film screening of 2013 is scheduled for November 7th at 7:00pm. The selected film will be announced closer to the screening date. To be added to the mailing list to receive information as it becomes available, visit www.venicearts.org or www.documentary.org.
